The influence of agricultural land-use intensity on bryophyte species richness

  title={The influence of agricultural land-use intensity on bryophyte species richness},
  author={Harald Gustav Zechmeister and Dietmar Moser},
  journal={Biodiversity & Conservation},
This study is a quantitative approach to the estimation of bryophyte species richness in relation to land-use intensity at three spatial scales in highly cultivated areas. A total of 460 randomly selected habitats and their various substrates within 29 study sites were investigated with regard to their land-use intensity and their bryophyte species richness in an agricultural region of eastern Austria. On bare soils (substrate-scale), low but regular disturbance increases bryophyte diversity in… CONTINUE READING
